Request for Proposals
The American Association of Bovine Practitioners Foundation announces two grants supporting clinical research in cattle. Each grant will be for up to $25,000. One will be for subjects related to beef cattle, and the other for dairy cattle, although some proposals may address both. Proposals should be aimed at providing practical solutions that practitioners can use.
Each proposal should include a list of the investigators and their brief resumes, a brief description of the trial, a detailed experimental protocol, and a tentative budget. If appropriate, more than one project may be funded in each category, but the total for each category will be limited to $25,000. At least one of the investigators must be an AABP member. In judging between proposals of similar merit, preference will be given to proposals from researchers who are starting their careers or from practitioners. Preference will also be given to projects where AABP Foundations funds can serve as seed money to attract other grants. Results of the studies are expected to be reported in the research summaries at an AABP Annual Conference and submitted to a peer-reviewed publication upon completion. 20% of the granted funds will be withheld until the results are presented and the article is submitted.

Proposals will be ranked by the Board of the AABP Foundation. Top ranking proposals will also be reviewed by experts in the area of study. The identities of the researchers will not be revealed to the outside reviewers.
Proposals must be received by January 31. Proposals MUST be submitted online. Questions may be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org, any other AABP Foundation Board Member or to the AABP Office at email@example.com.
